Taylor Swift is an unstoppable force that keeps breaking records left and right. There is no doubt that Taylor is a chart topping artist, but now she is facing backlash for her actions against the environment. Sadly, Taylor has topped the list of celebrities with the most private jet CO2 emissions.
Taylor Swift is being criticized greatly for her disregard of the environment. As the world battles the horrors of climate change, the super-wealthy make frequent use of carbon-spewing private jets. A sustainability marketing firm called Yard put together a new report using data to rank the celebrities whose private jets have flown the most so far this year.
Yard discovered that Taylor Swift’s two jets took 170 flights in a mere 200 days of 2022. Her total amount of CO2 flight emissions for the past seven months add up to 8,293.54 metric tons. According to Yard’s report, the average person emits just 7 metric tons of CO2 a year.
Earlier, Kylie Jenner was branded as a “climate criminal” for her 17-minute flight. The short flight would have only been a 40-minute drive. However, Kylie isn’t the only celebrity choosing to fly absurdly short distances, which is a huge waste of energy. Kylie Jenner didn’t even make it to the top ten list, despite being criticized heavily for flaunting her private jet flights.
After Taylor Swift taking the number 1 spot, Floyd Mayweather is the second celeb with the most CO2 emissions. Travis Scott and Kim Kardashian are placed tenth and seventh. Other celebrities to make it to the top 10 were Jay-Z, A-Rod, Blake Shelton, Steven Spielberg, Mark Wahlberg, and Oprah Winfrey.
